Teeth Cleaning and Dental Deep Cleaning

Receiving professional dental cleanings twice every year is one of the best steps you can take to keep your teeth in their best condition. While brushing and flossing every day are also essential, professional teeth cleanings clear away stubborn plaque and bacteria that can threaten your dental health.

As part of your dental cleaning at Mesa Street Dental, you’ll also have X-rays taken and be given a dental exam. These are crucial measures to identify decay or other issues before receiving the personalized treatment you need. Check out our blog post to find out more about what to expect from a dental cleaning.

If you’ve missed a few dental cleanings recently, schedule a dental deep cleaning with us. This is a more in-depth procedure to clean and brighten teeth with large amounts of plaque buildup. Left alone, plaque and bacteria residing on teeth will lead to tooth decay, inflamed gums, or more serious problems.

Preventive Dentistry for Healthy and Bright Smiles

Look after your smile and avoid painful and expensive oral health issues with dental cleanings every six months. They are an important component of preventive dentistry to fight conditions such as:

  • Cavities and tooth decay – if left untreated, cavities can ultimately cause pain and tooth loss. Teeth cleanings remove plaque and bacteria that can lead to cavities and decay.
  • Infected tooth roots – by deep cleaning the roots, also known as periodontal scaling, your El Paso dentist can treat or prevent gum infection.
  • Gingivitis (inflamed gums) – professional teeth cleaning is recommended to avoid recurring problems with gingivitis.
  • Periodontitis (gum disease) – this is a potentially serious condition with advanced cases requiring surgery but the early stages can be effectively treated with regular dental cleanings.
  • Premature tooth loss – preventive dental care is all about protecting your teeth and preventing tooth loss if at all possible. If a tooth does need to be replaced, Mesa Street Dental has a range of treatment options.
  • Teeth staining or discoloration – the best way to keep your smile looking bright is by twice daily brushing at home and dental checkups every six months. Mesa Street Dental’s hygienists can provide teeth cleaning and polishing to remove surface stains.

Brushing and Flossing – Your How-To Guide

While it may seem obvious that brushing your teeth is the best way to keep them clean, it’s surprising the number of people who are not doing it as effectively as they could. Make sure you’re following these basic tips to get the most out of your at-home sessions in between your regularly scheduled dental cleanings with Mesa Street Dental, your local El Paso dentist.

  • Brush at least twice a day, every day. It is especially important to brush your teeth before you go to sleep to avoid bacteria building up which can lead to cavities and gum disease.
  • Avoid brushing too hard. You may think you’re doing a better job by brushing vigorously but this can actually wear down your enamel and do damage to your gums over time. If you’re wearing out toothbrushes quickly, you probably need a light touch.
  • Change your toothbrush every three months. As well as wearing out and being less effective, toothbrushes can get dirty from sitting in the bathroom. A nice new one every three months will keep your oral health on the right track.
  • Floss, floss, floss. While it may seem like a chore, flossing is a very important step in preventive dental care. Using floss to remove particles stuck between your teeth lessens the amount of bacteria that can build up in your mouth.
  • Use floss before you brush. If you usually use floss after cleaning your teeth, you might want to rethink your strategy. If you use floss to remove the particles first, they won’t hang around in your mouth like they would if you flossed after brushing.
